Material type: TextTextPublisher: Singapore : World Scientific, c2014Description: xi, 345 p. : Illustrations ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9789814603270.Subject(s): Lie algebras | Lie groupsDDC classification: 512.55
Contents:
1. Introduction to groups-- 2. Representation of groups-- 3. Lie algebras-- 4. Relationship between lie algebras and lie groups-- 5. Irreducible tensor repre3sentations and Young tableau-- 6. Clifford algebra-- 7. Lorentz group and the Dirac equation-- 8. Yang-Mills gauge theory-- 9. Quark model and SUf(3) symmetry-- 10. Casimir invariants and adjoint operators-- 11. Root system of Lie algebras-- Index.
Summary: The book is intended for graduate students of theoretical physics (with a background in quantum mechanics) as well as researchers interested in applications of Lie group theory and Lie algebras in physics. The emphasis is on the inter-relations of representation theories of Lie groups and the corresponding Lie algebras.
